## Text Solution

**What is Known?**

Perfect squares

**What is unknown?**

Square root by using division method.

**Reasoning:**

When a number is large, even the method of trading the square root by prime factorization becomes lengthy and difficult, so the division method is used.

**Steps**

(i)

The square root of \(2304\) is calculated as follows

Since remainder is zero and number of digits and left in the given number. Therefore,

\(\sqrt {2304}= 48 \)

(ii)

The square root of \( 4489\) is calculated as follows.

\[\begin{align}\sqrt {4489} = 67\end{align}\]

(iii)

The square root of \(3481\) is calculated as follows.

\(\sqrt {3841}= 59\)

(iv)

The square root of \(529\) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {529}= 23\]

(v)

The square root of \(3249\) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {3249}= 57\]

(vi)

The square root of \(1369\) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {1369}= 37\]

(vii)

The square root of \(5776\) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {5776}= 146\]

(viii)

The square root of \(7921\) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {7921}= 89\]

(ix)

The square root of \(576\) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {576}= 24\]

(x)

The square root of \(1024\) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {1024}= 32\]

(xi)

The square root of \(3136 \) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {3136}= 56\]

(xii)

The square root of \(900 \) is calculated as follows.

\[\sqrt {900}= 30\]
